lets rely on a 56% chance of hitting garchomp guys!

lmao blizzard, besides Dragonite's Out rage will do more damage while hitting way more than f***ing Blizzard. cmon man I'm insulted that you even said Blizzard

Hmm...Garchomp is faster, and slightly stronger, and pretty good STAB coverage.

On the flip side, Dragonite has the superior movepool, is much more bulky, and can utilize both attacking stats, wheras Garchomp's Sp. Attk is pitiful.

My vote goes to Dragonite.

I say that Garchomp is the overall better Pokemon (no ****).

However, one on one, Dragonite beats the two most popular Garchomp variants (Scarf, Band) assuming they're sent out at the same time on a neutral battlefield.

In a 1v1 Garchomp wins.

In terms of versatility, Dragonite wins.

I personally prefer Salamence over both of them (moxie ftw)

This, pretty much.

Assuming no items, no previous damage, Multiscale, and Sandstorm, I assume it'd go like:

Garchomp used Outrage! It's super effective!
(Multiscale activates, Dragonite loses about 2/3-3/4 its max HP)
Dragonite used Dragon Dance! Attack rose! Speed rose!
Dragonite is buffeted by the sandstorm
Dragonite used Outrage! it's super effective! (80% of the time)
Garchomp fainted! (80% of the time)

Dragonite can't Ice Punch. Specially-offensive Dragonite do have access to Ice Beam and Blizzard. YacheChomp could probably take an Ice Beam, and *might* survive a Blizzard, but I don't feel like doing the calcs.

Despite Garchomp being banned, I'm inclined to say Dragonite is still the better dragon due to its versatility. Garchomp only really does one thing, granted it does it a little too well. He either needs to lose 2 points in base speed or enough SpDef to stop surviving every ice attack under the sun with a Yache Berry.
